Biennial Conference of UOAC

UOAC Conference advertisement by Peter Folk

Our next conference is July 31 to August 2, 2014 in St. John`s, Newfoundland.

The St. John’s and Gander NL chapters invite all ostomates, and their families and friends, to come to UOAC’s Biennial Conference in St. John’s NL July 31 to August 2, 2014. Preparations are well underway, led by Conference Administrator Delilah Guy of Gander and Conference Chair Carol Wells of St. John’s. The Conference will be held at the Delta Hotel in the heart of downtown St. John’s. Although Newfoundland is Canada’s youngest province, joining Confederation in 1949, St. John’s is the oldest city in North America. John Cabot in 1497 was one of the earlier visitors --- now it’s your turn to come!

What can Conference give to me?

  • Varied and interesting educational sessions about living with an ostomy
  • Time to visit with old friends and make new ones
  • Opportunity to attend the Annual General Meeting as a delegate or observer
  • Social events
  • Silent and live auctions and raffle prizes

What’s so special about St. John’s?

  • Signal Hill, where Marconi received the world’s first transatlantic wireless signal
  • Icebergs in the harbour---or just outside it
  • Home of hit CBC TV show Republic of Doyle
  • Home of musicians Great Big Sea
  • Screeching in and kissing the cod: an experience not to be missed
  • Whale watching
  • Entertainment and dining on George Street
  • The Rooms: provincial museum and art gallery
